Aren't you confusing file numbering with shutter counts?
Nope. I used PhotoMe and it shows the number of shots tested so I know it is 0

The OP's original question was: date/time/local/language already set? The answer is "no" if it is brand new... and you have to set it.
I have to say that I agree with what you believe. However, Pentax USA (assuming you can believe everything they say) advised me that in fact it is not unusual for Pentax to send a camera to a destination (like NY) with the local, date stamp and time preset.

Do I buy that? I don't know. But the camera was at 0 clicks apparently because I could account for every single shutter actuation I made when I PhotoeMe'd the camera and it registered 72.

Now the only problem with the dang camera is SDXC issues. I don't know whether or not they have addressed that in the most recent firmware.
